Dreams About The Face

The Meaning Behind Face Dreams

A face in your dream expresses the inside of the dreamer personality revealing a person’s true character, health, and emotional state of mind.

Whenever a mirror or reflection shows back the dreamers face it shows what is really taking place behind the mask you wear. How we feel on the inside will naturally reflect on the outside in our dreams. This is why we never notice our faces in our dreams until something negative usually occurs to get your attention.
